Ancient Indian Sculpture

This is a 742 Year old sculpture found in Keshava Temple at Somanathpura.  Here you can see a Hindu god seated on his throne wearing a crown and jewelery's and the godess seated on his lap and resting her feet on the lotus flower, elephant is supporting the lotus so that it does not bend because of the weight on it.
